And foodie day 2.
So anyways, in San Antonio we ended staying directly on the Riverwalk. If you have never been there, it’s a nice stretch of River where you walk…go figure. (Isn’t it nice when things are exactly what they appear to be?) It’s a few miles long and had restaurants, bars, stores…everything for your tourist encounters. It’s a lot of fun and something that is on the San Antonio big tourist list.
To the untrained eye this just looks like a picture of us being tourists but really it is us on top of the bridge where Selena was filmed.
The first thing I wanted after checking into our hotel was Mexican food. More like guacamole. We stopped at the first restaurant we saw called the Maria Mia.
The singing mariachi band swarmed us before we could even order and sang. I dubbed them my vacation boyfriends.
Maria Mara asked if we wanted guacamole with our chips…what a silly question. I basically ate this entire thing. I have never been to a restaurant where so many staff asked how we were doing. I almost couldn’t choke down my food because every minute someone else was asking.
Anyways back to my salad. If this was how my vacation was going to go…well I didn’t mind one bit. I love taco salads, nothing beats the moment when you are like done with my salad…now I got a taco to eat.
I had a few taco salads on my vacation (by a few I mean 4).
We also went to a restaurant called Texas de Brazil. This is a chain restaurant and it has probably become my favorite restaurant of all time. It isn’t cheap (roughly 50 dollars per person) but it is 100% worth it. You have unlimited salad bar with everything from goat cheese, asparagus, smoked salmon, couscous…really everything.
Then they bring you all different types of meats whenever you want. There are literally waiters that go around the restaurant and their only job is to serve the various types of meats: steak, pork, filet mignon, lamb. You can choose pieces cooked anywhere from medium rare to well done (but it seems like a sin in Texas to get anything not medium rare…I like that anyways). I left barely waddling out and all I wanted to do after was sleep. So I did.
If you are anywhere near one a Texas de Brazil, I highly recommend it. Not only because you the food is amazing, but because it is just a really cool and interesting experience. Just to give you an idea, there was a lady on tight ropes doing flips and stuff behind glass…while we were eating. I should have taken a photo but I was too busy eating.
Isn’t that what vacation is for?
